John McCain of Arizona is voicing his displeasure at President Donald Trump’s pardon of the former Phoenix metro area sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of a misdemeanor contempt-of-court charge for defying a judge’s orders that he stop conducting immigration patrols.

    Keith Olbermann's friends and family may want to check on him after a particularly troubling Twitter meltdown. The corybantic ravings and fanatical delusions displayed in his tweets are cause for alarm. His particular frantic symptoms are familiar to anyone who has read Old Yeller. Agitation, salivation, foaming at the mouth, confusion, hallucination, and extreme anxiety are sure signs of a rabies infection -- and Olbermann appears to be in the late stages. The confusion stage of the disease started with this tweet about Trump not declaring the flooding in Texas a national disaster fast enough, even though a president must...
  • Joe Arpaio's Pardon Did Not Go Through The Justice Department. It Didn't Have To.

    The US Department of Justice's pardon office did not review former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio's pardon, a DOJ official confirmed to BuzzFeed News late Friday. It didn't have to. The US Constitution gives the president broad power to issue pardons and commute sentences, and there is no law requiring the president to consult with the Justice Department. President Trump is not the first president to issue a pardon that didn't go through DOJ ...

    After receiving President Trump's first pardon, Joe Arpaio's plans have gone from possible prison to book-writing, speeches and potentially another run for office in Arizona, with Sen. Jeff Flake's seat one opportunity he is eyeing. The former Maricopa County sheriff told the Washington Examiner he's upset at negative reaction to the Friday pardon, and that he feels Republican politicians are insufficiently supportive of the president, who he calls a great man. "I could run for mayor, I could run for legislator, I could run for Senate," Arpaio said Monday. One particular race, however, is likely to gain significant attention: the...

    Chelsea Clinton really stepped in it on Saturday when she tweeted a Washington Post essay from someone who spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s infamous Maricopa County jail. Only problem was, Clinton tweeted the story headline without quotes, making it read as if she was saying that she spent a year in Arpaio’s jail. “The year I spent in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail was hell. He should never walk free,” the tweet said with a link to the Post essay. The essay details the horrors that Francisco Chairez faced while he was in Arpaio’s jail for a drunk driving conviction....

    When Univision anchor Jorge Ramos agreed to be a guest on Sunday's State Of The Union on CNN, I don't think he expected the race card pushback he would receive at the hands of Arizona State Senator Steve Montenegro. During the debate over President Donald Trump's pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Ramos pulled out his stock set of liberal clichés to recite which were effortlessly mocked and swatted aside by Montenegro. At the end of the 12 minute segment, Ramos appeared to be quite irked as you can see.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio spoke with Neil Cavuto from FOX Business Network on Wednesday after the Trump rally Tuesday in Phoenix, Arizona. On Tuesday President Trump hinted he will pardon the former sheriff for charges that stem from “defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants.” The 85 year-old Arpaio is facing possible time in jail. Sheriff Joe defended and praised his friend President Donald Trump and lashed out at the far left hacks who put him through hell for several years in a political witch hunt.

    Joe Arpaio was found guilty Monday of criminal contempt for defying a judge’s order to stop detaining illegal immigrants, but the former sheriff isn’t going down without a fight. Shortly after U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton issued her verdict, Arpaio attorney Jack Wilenchik said the longtime lawman of Maricopa County, Arizona, once known as “America’s toughest sheriff,” plans to appeal and press for a jury trial. “Joe Arpaio is in this for the long haul, and he will continue his fight to vindicate himself, to prove his innocence and to protect the public,” Mr. Wilenchik said in a statement....

    PHOENIX (AP) — The political career of Joe Arpaio ended last year when the six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for cracking down on illegal immigration and housing inmates in tents outside in the desert heat was trounced in an election that focused on his own legal troubles. Now, the 85-year-old who called himself America’s toughest sheriff will face his day of reckoning in court for defying a judge’s order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. Arpaio’s trial starts Monday on a criminal contempt-of-court charge for prolonging the patrols for nearly a year and a half. The judge later...

    Donald Trump’s transition team is reportedly considering Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David Clarke and outgoing Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio as possible nominees to head up the Department of Homeland Security. Clarke has made a name for himself as a Fox News pundit and avid supporter of the gun lobby, using his platform in the media to attack Black Lives Matter, which he describes as a lawless, “subversive” and potentially ISIS-linked group composed of “black slime” that must be “eradicated,” and to champion the cause of anti-government militants, whom he praises as patriots. When white supremacists murdered six people...
